Sena RideConnected: Intercom Range-Extending App Now Available!

Chat with fellow riders on your headset without the range limits of Bluetooth.

Published on 01.11.2017

Sena has announced today the release of the long-awaited RideConnected smartphone app. The new app allows you to communicate with other riders over your headset intercom, without the range limitations of Bluetooth technology. The RideConnected App uses your mobile data network to connect multiple riders at once, anywhere in the world. As long as you are connected to a mobile network, you can maintain communication with fellow riders no matter if they are a few miles away or across the globe.

Sena RideConnected App

The new app, created for both iOS and Android phones, is available for free in the iTunes and Google Play Stores. Not only will riders no longer be limited by range, the amount of intercom connections between riders are virtually limitless as well. Compatible with all Sena Bluetooth headsets, the RideConnected App offers more freedom than ever before. As long as you are connected to WiFi, or a mobile network, you may now communicate over any distance, and with more riders than ever before.

Set up your own personal profile and navigate through the features of the RideConnected App with ease. Simply create different teams, and invite friends to create their own profile on the App through SMS message, GPS, or by providing them with your unique four-digit code. Users may also use the existing voice prompts of their Sena Bluetooth 4.1 headsets to operate the App.

The App will be the first of many added benefits designed specifically for Sena users. The RideConnected App for motorcycle and cycling communication is Sena’s solution to sticky communication situations while on the road. Riders will no longer be limited by a certain distance or amount of connections, as long as you have cellular data.

How do you communicate over WiFi while riding a motorcycle? Why would you want to talk to a rider on the other side of the world?

Hey Sbashir. The WiFi connection is just one option. An example of how this could be used is if you got separated from your group and you enter a town where you have no cell signal. Potentially, you could head to an internet cafe or coffee shop and connect to your team through Wifi. And while you may not need to connect to someone on the other side of the world, you may want to intercom your team on the other side of town enroute to a meet up point, giving you the ability to coordinate your arrival.

So you would need to be in a mobile coverage area to be in communication via this device ?

You can use either your mobile network or WIFI when available. Also, just to clarify, RideConnected is an app (not a device). You can download it for free through iTunes or Google Play.

Does this prioritise the original bluetooth comms over data, or is it data only when using the app?

SENA is an amazing company who constantly updates their firmware for free. Thumbs up! Now the question: How much data does it use if you are connected for hours at a time? and what is the difference between this and a phone call? (since you need cell network)

It uses your data. Cost varies by your provider and your plan.
